Alice Cooper’s Alcohol Cookbook And Timetable For World Conquest – 1973

In June 1973, Creem magazine issued a directive: “PUT DOWN those needles and quaaludes, kiddo, and pick up the jug!” It was time to get into Alice Cooper’s Alcohol Cookbook and Timetable for World Conquest.


Alice Cooper recipe



As Oliver Hall writes, “By ‘73, the late, great Glen Buxton, who contributed four recipes to this cookbook, had already been hospitalized for pancreatitis and forbidden to drink ever again—not the most seductive advertisement for a cold glass of Buxton’s Bomber.”

So here are Alice Cooper’s 23 recipes (22 drinks plus one hangover tincture) for all you anti-drugs purists.

THANK god the age of drug sickies is over. Those bread ‘n’ butter boys, Alice Cooper, have proved exemplary leadership into the genial asskicking renaissance of alkiedom. They stand for booze almost as much as great music, and though they may total Porsches, puke up pop tabs and bite off their fans’ thumbs, none of ’em will ever make the cover of The Rolling Stone by ODing in a Continental opium den. All-American lushes to a man; they want you to follow their good example.

So PUT DOWN those needles and Quaaludes, kiddo, and pick up the jug! It’s the surest, fastest way to glean all the chrome hotcha charisma of Alice himself for your very own; just stumble around drunk off your ass all the time and instant stardom is assured. Stan Cornyn will break down your door with a recording contract and all the boys and girls on your block will want to ball you. You can start with (Unpaid Plug) Budweiser beer which is the Cooper crew’s staple suds, consumed by the gallon day in and day out. For those intrepid souls and old alkies with a tolerance who want to, machete their way into the exotic recesses of classic Alice Cooper toxicity, the band has provided us with the following truly lethal recipes, each and every one employing spirituous fermenti in a diabolic manner unique to Alice’s taste and lifestyle on the road and at home.
